This pedal has taken a bad rap for a couple things- rotary sounding bad, and sounding too
compressed. If it sounds compressed- I suggest putting it after distortions and NOT in the
effect loop. Remember, it is a volume based pedal and you usually put those closer to your
guitar. I did this and immediately it sounded great.
The "rotary" sound is bad as someone else mentioned. However if you run it stereo as it is
intended for the best effect, it turns into a monster with great rotary simulation. You can
distinctly hear the highs twirling in one amp and the lows in the other. Very cool.
Tap tempo is usable. It is not a "1 to 1" tap- in tremolo mode for example each tap gives you
4 tremolo stutters. This makes it very usable to me.
Built to last a while. Good switching system. Saves the tempo of your last tap if you
turn it off in the middle of a song and then back on again.
Pricey, but does alot if used properly- see "overall".

I used this tremolo for a few months before I decided to sell it. The different tremolos sounded great and I really liked having the Leslie option also. The one thing that made me decide to sell this pedal is the lacking tap tempo function. It is very difficult to use in a live situation. Hold the switch down for 3 seconds then tap your tempo. If you want to reset the tempo you must hold it down again for 3 seconds, which can quickly become a pain. Also if you want the term to pulse with the quarter note and tap in quarters in pulses with 16th notes. So to get the desired quarter note pulse, you must tap in whole notes, which is also a pain in a live setting.

Versatile and elegant

By Nick Perry-Guetti

from Portland, OR

I only really needed this pedal for two things: 1) Rotary speaker simulation, which I use a lot, and 2) very deep, usually square-wave tremolo, which I use on a couple of tunes. I don't really use the amp-tremolo emulator settings at all, and only occasionally try the vibe, duo-trem and vibro-pan (although the latter two are especially fascinating, mind-warping effects that I'd like to find more occasion to use). However, the fact that this pedal does two things so amazingly well and has all this versatility aside from that makes it a very nice piece of work. One thing the product description doesn't tell you (and I don't know why it doesn't) is that the rotary effect features actual lag time, so that when you change the tempo (the tap tempo takes some getting used to, as it actually functions at double the speed of your taps), the vibration speeds up or slows down gradually, and this is very fun to play with. I think it sounds very much like a real Leslie, including the way it adds sustain to any guitar, and the Modify knob allows you to mix the wet & dry signals to your liking so that it fits whatever tone your other equipment adds up to. I especially like it with the signal chain thus: Guitar bridge pickup > unity gain buffer > compressor > octave divider > mild distortion > TR-7 rotary; this sounds EXACTLY like a pipe organ. As for the deep square-wave tremolo, what can I say? But on this setting, if you like that effect (as many fellow John Cipollina fans will), I recommend placing the overdrive AFTER the TR-7, or just using your amp's overdrive, as the tremolo does not do well with clipping pedals in front of it. All in all, one of my favorite pedals.

Great Pedal!

By Joseph Lucero

from Orlando, FL

There are alot of tremolo pedals out there but this one comes with a rotary setting for an authentic leslie effect, which really won me over. As for the other settings, they all sound great to me and for the price you can't beat it! This pedal is definitely a keeper.

The TR-7

By Charles Brackett

from Oakland, CA.

Despite the sort of lukewarm reveiews I read here, I went ahead and got the Digitech/Hardwire Tremolo Unit. And it's so impressive I don't see how it could get a bad review, I'm glad I bought it. It gets all the standard tremolo/vibrato effects, plus it's rotary tone is the best I've heard (other than a real Lesley speaker) and I've tried a few... including the dual-pedal Boss unit. This pedal isn't weak, it's very powerful. I detected no volume drop, although there is no true bypass, I don't think it's needed here. There's so many tones available with this unit I may never find them all...

Job well done

By Michael Shanks

from Houston

Yes fantastic pedal here. Not cheap by any means, nor does it have the best sounds one can find, however it is VERY tweakable to your utmost desires. It can do the Univibe thing. It can do the chorus thing. If you are worried about a volume drop when you kick on the tremolo this pedal has a tone knob (modify) to boost the signal for you. I only wanted to get a tremolo pedal but came across this one and was blown away at how great both the trem and vibrato sounded on here. Two are always better than one, no?

Weakwire

By Tone Obsessed

from York, PA (nowhere)

I've got all of the Hardwire pedals (except for the recently released Phaser) and I'd have to say that this pedal is the weakest of the bunch. It sounds very processed and the rotary setting is just plain awful. The tremolo settings are okay but certainly nothing to get worked up about. For $140 you'd do better to buy a pedal that does less but sounds good at what it does do. All bells and whistles and little else. A big disappointment in an otherwise good line of pedals. Thumbs way down.

Very legit

By Tyler-Oe-6m

from Denver, CO

This pedal surprised me. I went in to buy a pitch shifter and on a whim, whithout trying it out, decided to get this aswell. As you can see if you read the description, you get various tremolo types, some vibe effects AND a rotary emulator. I haven't gotten to try this pedal in stereo, but it sounds great mono. I need to hurry up and buy another amp to REALLY try it. The rotary effect isn't bad, but not all that great. Def a cool thing to have and I'll use it. What surprised me when I plugged in (again, I bought this on a whim. No prior research) was that it has a tap tempo! That's all I've wanted with a tremolo and I thought I was just going to have to deal with it, but it's there! What Digitech really should do (Maybe a TR-8?) is put another jack on it for an external tap tempo. Having to hold down for three seconds doesn't really work too well for a live situation, but I'll eventually get a Keeley true-bypass switch for it and my problem will be solved.Overall, awesome pedal. Sounds great, solid construction and tap tempo! I think with an ext. tap tempo, this will be 5 stars across the board for me.

not disappointed!

By Dylan

from Knoxville, TN

Very well made and very pleasant effect. The trems behave as expected. The other included effects don't really have a home on my board, so the stomp block is perfect. I really didn't want a digitech pedal, but after a bad experience with a boutique brand i am thoroughly impressed. There are better trems out there, but at this price point you can't beat it!
